Tottenham Hotspur confirm they will travel to Ibrox for pre-season friendly with Rangers

Giovanni van Bronkhorst’s side are currently in the midst of their own European campaign having reached the semi-finals of the Europa League. They are also trail league leaders Celtic by six points with just four games to go, while the Gers will also face Hearts in the Scottish Cup final next month.

The match will be broadcast live on the club’s new streaming service, SPURSPLAY and also on Rangers TV. The trip to Glasgow is the second confirmed travel destination for the club after they also announced they will tour South Korea as part of their preparations for the 2022/23 campaign.
